At the moment, there are two coasters and no support rides. One flat ride would go greatly appreciated and would help the flow of the coaster queues. The new ride said to be going to the Harry Potter land, is this (below) and it would do very well at Alton Towers.http://www.kuka-entertainment.com/en/pr ... pts/tower/
I must have missed "Harry Potter and the Journey into Space". :lol: That thing is far too tall for Alton, and the capacity would be dire unless they got two.
I would like to see the Blade get moved to Mutiny Bay because it's a pirate ship and a pirate ship belongs in a pirate-themed area. I can see a Gyroswing being installed where Blade used to be. I can also see a flat ride being installed on the former Dynamo site.
The entire point of moving the Blade would be as the land is being considered for SW7, so they wouldn't use it for another flat ride. Also a gyro swing would break the height restriction and it wouldn't fit in the plot. :)
The BH Tent has been unoccupied for years and an indoor flat or a small-medium coaster such as a Gerstlauer would be very good. Also, Enterprise and Submission has been at Alton for years and I can't honestly see anything replace Enterprise or Submission. I like Enterprise because it's a classic and it fits into the theme of X Sector. Submission, I can see going to Forbidden Valley.
They wouldn't install anything more major than a kiddie coaster the year before SW7. Why would they move Submission? It's complete crap and hardly popular. What benefit would there be moving it to Valley if you're going to keep Enterprise?
They have a rapids ride and a powered coaster and there hasn't been any investment for a long time. I would like to see a family-thrilling flat ride such as a topple tower, which would be themed well and would appeal to both markets.
I can't see where a Topple Tower would fit. Also other parks have had massive technical problems with theirs, and they don't get good reviews. Alton wouldn't buy one.
This area is a confusion for me. There's only one ride and I can't see AT doing anything to this area until they install something big in there. They have Duel, which is awsome but, I would like to see an indoor coaster in this area.
Sorry, but it won't be any of the above. :P
